Seven Spaces is definitely not a concept album - it rather resembles a kind of sample assortment, composed of tracks produced from 2002 to 2005. However, the selection process has been dominated by one central ambition: variety.
Particularly in the "electronic dub" segment, LP releases are prone to become slightly tedious when listened to in their full length, due to the genre's inherent bias towards lengthy and monotonous tracks. In addition, the absence of vocals and traditional song structures often makes it even more difficult to keep one's ears focused after two or three tracks.
Achieving a high degree of diversity therefore has to be an important goal for a near-60-minutes release. Seven Spaces (hopefully) fulfills this requirement by alternating between organic, soothing, earthy pieces and "classic" rolling dub-
techno tracks stuffed with lots of reverb and echoes - the latter already well-known from previous Nulleins EPs on Thinner.
The album title refers to the impression this kind of music might establish in the alert listener's mind, especially when using headphones: each track opening up an imaginary room, determined by its distinct size, shape, surfaces, lights,
temperature and countless other attributes. In short, it is really just an encouragement to let your imagination paint the video clip. Enjoy.

Best little intro
More deep click funk than a little. I keep this one ready at all times on the mp3 player.
It sort of pushes a clear space into my attention...

This is a wonderful release by Nulleins. Every track is a wonder for the ears. It is almost as if he was trying to create little adventures in head while relaxing you.

the seven spaces of this new release of Nulleins need more ... space
why not eight, nine, ten like these
Thinner gives us probably an element of the 2006 very short list
